Nikola Jokic may have gotten away with a blatant foul at the end of the game, but he secured the win for the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night.
Jokic, after dropping 32 points, came up with a huge block and sent Zion Williamson sprawling to the floor to lead the Denver Nuggets to a 114-112 win over the New Orleans Pelicans at Ball Arena.
“The basketball gods always give a little bit of luck to the people who play hard,” Jokic said, via The Denver Post’s Mike Singer.
